Stone and I had really great favors at our wedding... we kind of had a bird theme and our favors were little bird's nests with Jordan Almonds in them that had a tie around it with our new address. I loved them, and it was fun ordering all of the pieces and putting them together (with lots of help!).
Well, NYMag just did a special shopping post with 100 great wedding favor ideas, and they are all pretty out of the box, which I love. They came up with some things that would not only be colorful and interesting (especially for the photographer), but these favors would all be so fun for the guests to have during the reception. Really, they are mostly silly toys and instruments, but, I once went to a wedding where they handed out light up necklaces, bracelets and glasses and it took the party to an entire new level.
Anyway, here are some of my favorites from the bunch, and you can go here to see them all!
